Interdisciplinary cooperation

We are happy to announce a new joint initiative with the research teams of Prof. Angelika Redder and Prof. Kristin Bührig from the HZSK (Hamburg Centre for Speech Corpora, www.corpora.uni-hamburg.de) at Hamburg University who – among other – are engaged in the linguistic research of narratives. Our joint focus lies on the transdisciplinary and computer aided research of factual and fictional narratives. We are currently preparing a joint workshop on discipline specific practices in the annotation and exploration of narratives. Our workshop will be open to other researchers with an interest in speech and narrative corpora and is scheduled to take place in July 2012, probably in the context of the upcoming DH 2012.
